Not enough miracle treatments are being discovered - Institute for Respiratory Health

Not enough miracle treatments are being discovered

This is because lung health is chronically underfunded and under-resourced. With more than seven million Australians living with a lung disease this can’t be right.

Together we can change this.

Right now, Institute for Respiratory Health researchers are working hard in the lab, finding new ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and cure lung conditions.

With your support we can give our researchers the best possible chance to find new drugs and ways to diagnose and treat more people, faster. Just like Stewart. 

Stewart’s Story

Imagine waiting 27 years for a miracle and then it happens thanks to research.

Stewart was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of four. His life was so severely impacted by the disease that he was just existing as opposed to living.

His life has changed thanks to a miracle medicine called Trikafta. Over the past four years the clinical trials unit at the Institute for Respiratory Health has been a part of landmark clinical trials research right here in Western Australia to help progress a breakthrough lifechanging treatment for cystic fibrosis patients.
